, just to follow that up, charlie, we have a serious situation between turkey-- a nato ally-- and syria developing. they've actually now exchanged fire across their border. the turks are very concerned, also, who gets arms inside syria what happens after. so it's an enormously complex situation the issue romney raised is not illegitimate, it's all in the execution. >> rose: the question that remains for both administrations, is there a policy to look at the rise of the consequences of the arab spring and islamist governments? whether it's libya or syria or tunisia or egypt or other countries sdoshgs either of these candidates lay out a kind of strategic policy that's wise for the united states and a role to play that will be constructive? >> so foreign policy, you know, really, for the most part, has been largely absent from this campaign. i would argue the main reason for that, charlie, is that obama has i think conducted a quite efficient foreign policy. it hasn't been heroic but it's not a heroic age. i think hi he's basically kept the country safe and i don't think this is the time
. the nato commander says the alliance is ready to step in to defend turkey from syrian aggression. leland vittert is keeping an eye on this very serious situation live from jerusalem. leland? >> reporter: jon, what's most concerning right now is that those artillery skirmishes between the syrians and the turks are continuing unabated. we are now beginning to get to the second week of those artillery skirmishes which are continuing. the nato chief of staff is saying that he is ready and his forces are ready to defend turkey against outside aggression by syria. and this comes as turkey is now beefing up its artillery, tank military presence and then also moving forward some f-16 fighter jets, forward deploying them to near the syrian border which has become increasingly intense over the past week or so. this can serve not only as a warning to the syrians, but also a little bit of trying to cool down tensions inside of turkey. nato is trying to keep this from escalating into a full war, but from the syrian perspective, this nato warning certainly puts the feeling that if there is a war betwe
is a nato ally. however this morning we've also heard of the senior adviser to the turkish prime minister, who seemed to quell those fears saying turkey has no intention of going to war with syria but that turkey is capable of defending its borders and will retaliate when necessary. >> holly williams, thank you so much. clarissa ward is with us now, reporting on the uprising in syria for more than a year. good morning. >> good morning, charlie and norah. >> good to have you here. >> thank you. >> what is the reaction on the part of the people supporting the rebellion against the government to the fact that they have not been getting the kind of assistance they hoped for or expected? >> i think there's a sense now not just of disappointment, but actually of real bitterness. they know that they cannot win this war without sophisticated anti-aircraft weaponry. it's hard to overemphasize how devastating the effect of the regime's constant aerial b bombardment is on the cities. they know they need a no fly zone or those weapons. because they're not getting them from the west or international c
is a nato ally. however, this morning we heard from a senior adviser to the turkey engineer prime minister end he calmed some of those fears by saying turkey has no intention of going to war with syria but capable of defending its borders and will retaliate when necessary. >> clarissa ward is with us and been reporting on the upridesing in syria for more than a war. good to have you here. so what is the reaction on the part of the syrian free army and the people who are supporting the rebellion against the government to the fact that they have not been getting the kind of assistance they hoped for or expected. >> there's a sense of not just of disappointment but of real bitterness. they know that they cannot win this war out sophisticated anti-aircraft weaponry and it's hard to overemphasize how devastating the regime constant aerial bombardment on the people, on the ground, on the cities. they know they need a no fly zone or need those weapons and because they are not getting them from the west or any support from the international community they are increasingly turning towards extremist
with breaking news in the middle east. nato calling an emergency meeting as tensions between syria and turkey boil over. turkey pounding targets inside syria, reportedly killing soldiers, in retaliation for an attack on a border down which killed five civilians. there are mounting concerns that syria's civil war, is, if nothing else, is spilling over its borders. >>> gas prices could soon hit $5 per gallon for millions of american drives. a refinery fire near san francisco and pipeline issues have tightened supplies in california. as a result, prices could rise some 30 cents in the next week alone. it looks like only drivers in california will be so affected. >>> and there was a fire last night at the largest refinery in the country. the exxon-mobile plant in baytown, texas. it took crews almost four hours to put this fire out. the fire was at a diesel processing unit. no other production was affected. >>> and slightly encouraging news for the millions of americans looking for a job today. private companies hired 162,000 workers last month. slightly more than expected, although, not enough, t
partisan by nato nine. then in 2011, yet another chance for bowles/simpson and we can squabble about what obama should have done, whether they do with boehner could have happened, but it didn't. but i would be wary of generalizing from the last 10 years, just that would've made a mistake and go to to say the preceding 20 years would've been the model. and i do think the system is so broken or so partisan that one couldn't have more like what we had. this is a topic of this panel because the presidential leadership with presidential leadership and real practical leadership as well as rhetorical will be very, very important. there's a bunch of issues. you could do immigration reform in 2013. i don't think it's a huge substantive disagreement about that. you can get 75% of those, 280 houseboats for the right piece of legislation. but is anyone going to step up and do not? you can imagine 2013 a lot of these issues seem totally intact to pull. but those require skillful presidential leadership. >> right here in the aisle with a question. >> yes, good morning. you know, o'connor retired foreig
